Weathered Souls | Double Barrel First In Line Imperial Stout

March 30, 2021 |

All craft beer heads remember the glory days of in-person bottle releases and time spent waiting in line with like-minded and equally dedicated beer fans. Coolers opened to reveal rare finds that would be shared amongst the crowd to make the wait more enjoyable for the craft beer elite. While times have certainly changed, those memories remain. San Antonio, TX-based Weathered Souls Brewing Company’s latest members-only beer release is reminiscent of those glorious whales that would breach within the crowd dedicated enough to be First In Line.

New Image Brewing | Five for Freezing Imperial Stout

March 29, 2021 |

As part of their five-year anniversary series, New Image Brewing tackles the complicated science of fractional freezing with their new Imperial Stout, Five for Freezing. Typically, frozen beer is a travesty. There’s nothing quite as disheartening as cracking open the beer you crave, only to find that it’s morphed into a slushie mess or worse, discovering that a bottle left to chill in the freezer exploded like a Peep in the microwave. However, freezing beer before it’s packaged, is actually an old-world technique that yields some highly desirable results.

Who would’ve guessed it, we’re about to get another heavy round of snow… Ok, who am I kidding, it’s Colorado, so it’s always a possibility. Whether you’re hunkering down this weekend or heading out to take advantage of the fresh snow, you’ll need some drinking options. Why not grab a pack of 10K IPA from WeldWerks, and drink for a good cause? The Unite edition proceeds benefit UNC’s UNITE Program. Read More

February 25, 2021 |

Welcome to the Colorado Beer Beat, a bi-weekly roundup of all of the new can releases around the state. From Denver to Grand Junction, and everywhere in between, we have you covered. Be sure to check back on Thursdays to find out what’s new in the Colorado beer scene.

With another round of snow coming in across the state today, there’s no better time to embrace stout month before it ends. While it’s not a stout, Denver Beer Co. is releasing a Black IPA dedicated to their late head brewer, Jason Buehler. Pick one up this weekend, to honor the memory of a member of the Colorado craft beer community.

What We’re Drinking | February 5, 2021

February 5, 2021 |

There seems to be little signs of slowing down as the new year is already a month behind us. This week has been a long one, but there’s an exciting end in sight. We can do it. For millions of Americans this Sunday features a “Big Game,” but let’s just all raise a glass and hope or pray that the team from down south doesn’t get the win. No one — not a single person — needs to see Number 12 win another damn championship. Here’s to hoping for a miracle and maybe some snow will come down in Tampa. While I continue to bet against Tom, here is What We’re Drinking.

Ultimate 6er | PorchDrinkers & Their Pets

February 3, 2021 |

Quick, think about the best thing to pair with a beer. No, it’s not a medium steak. It’s not a spicy chicken sandwich or cheese, either. A hike and a new IPA to try afterward? Nope. Give up? Okay fine I’ll tell you. It’s your pets! Read More

Brewery Showcase | Elsewhere Brewing

January 29, 2021 |

From the street, the draw of Elsewhere Brewing is evident and hard to ignore. The vibrant colors bounce off the white brick and the allure of the painted greenery pulls you to a table. Place is a powerful tool and weighs down heavily on experiences and memories. This sentiment is present in the look and feel throughout the brewery. Read More

Zipline Brewing Co. | Milk Stout

January 21, 2021 |

As winter rolls into Nebraska, it’s time to slow down and enjoy some locally-crafted stouts. Zipline Brewing Co. has released their winter seasonal beer, Milk Stout. This is their second year brewing Milk Stout, and locals are glad to see it come back. Last year the beer was so popular, they ran out earlier than expected. This year you should be able to find it on store shelves (and at one of their four locations in Lincoln and Omaha) into mid-March.

What We’re Drinking | January 8, 2021

January 8, 2021 |

We’re back and well-rested, yet somehow exhausted, from all of the holiday hustle and bustle and time commitments. While 2020 is officially behind us — good riddance — 2021 isn’t exactly off to the best start it could be. In spite of weather and events on the national stage, the beer industry is still staying afloat despite pandemic shutdowns. That does not mean everyone, and that does not mean thriving. Dry January is popular for many “influencers” and eager resolution starters, but do what you can to continue supporting local. Buy shirts, hats and other merch or gift cards to use at a later date. Grab a beer or browse some online shops while checking out What We’re Drinking.

Strong BA Series | Foothills Brewing Coffee Infused BA Sexual Chocolate Imperial Stout

December 17, 2020 |

In an industry which has been largely built around the search for the new and exciting, it can be refreshing to revisit some of the beers and breweries which blazed the trails for the modern day. Foothills Brewing, based in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, is a perfect example not only of one of these foundational companies, but also of one which has done an amazing job of staying relevant and responsive to the modern craft beer drinker. Perhaps none of their brews illustrates this better than their Coffee Infused Bourbon Barrel-Aged Sexual Chocolate, one of the state’s most anticipated yearly releases.

What We’re Drinking | December 11, 2020

December 11, 2020 |

December took decades to get here this year, but now it’s speeding by at an ungodly rate. The next few weeks are going to continue this trend I fear. I think I need a beer now in preparation and probably a few when the end of the year does come. The 2021-22 NBA season is right around the corner. Cyberpunk 2077 dropped yesterday. The Mandalorian is every Friday, and Season 4 of Netflix’s Big Mouth is only a week old. There’s plenty of content to fill your time off, so fill a mug with some cider or a spiked eggnog and let’s get the holiday celebrations started. While you get those cocktails going, here is What We’re Drinking.

What We’re Drinking | December 4, 2020

December 4, 2020 |

December is here, so let’s light the trees and count down the days until 2020 are over. This week started with a wintry mix, which is rare in Georgia, but brought a week’s worth of surprises. An elf seemingly wandered from the North Pole to my house as decoration. From the string lights on most surfaces, to the garland-wrapped bar car, I think I’m only missing the sleigh and reindeer. Maybe those are coming in the next few weeks? Until we get there, here is What We’re Drinking.

Ultimate 6er | Fantasy Football

November 18, 2020 |

We’re getting ready for playoffs in most Fantasy Football seasons, and despite how your record looks, I’m sure that you could use a beer or six to finish out the season. Some of us are blitzing through our schedule with no issues, while others of us are cursing because of bad luck with matchups despite the points you consistently score. Read More
